Our Story

A Space for Healing, Understanding and Experienced Care.

Since we opened our door, we began a mission to celebrate life and service our community. So we have welcomed and nurtured families, planted trees, created pathways. Since 1886, Bateman Funeral Home has been a peaceful setting where families have been placing their trust in us for generations. Through the years, we have made compassionate, service a priority and we are honored to serve you. We recognize this as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we offer. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the incredible legacy of our community.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond with kindness, understanding and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Bateman Funeral Home can trace it's roots back to 1886 when W.A. Fash purchased property to start a funeral home in Toledo, Oregon on Hill street.   E.F. Gaar became a  partner in September of 1897. While the funeral home changes hands, the priority has remained the same; offering solace for reflection, appreciation and celebration. Bateman Funeral Home has provided meaningful, personal service since 1914. We continue the legacy of a family owned funeral home, providing the most reasonably priced memorials, funeral, cremation and cemetery services for Oregon coastal and inland communities. Your family matters to us. We take pride in being able to guide you through life's difficult days and guiding you to create healing celebrations unique to your loved one.
